Mexico the most dangerous nation in the world and is under siege from narco-murders locked in a drug civil war. This past week in Mexico drug cartels have been displaying their murder victims like trophies in public. The dead have been found displayed in plain sight Friday morning, as if to convey the blood lust that the cartels are capable of. The gruesome sight of 9 bodies Hanging from a bridge in Nuevo Laredo with their hands bound hanging from the neck and showing signs of torture were found with a message displayed on the bridge overpass. The Message identified the 5 men and 4 woman as Gulf Cartel members and that they where killed by the Zeta Cartel. The display of the bodies was probably a waring to federal law enforcement in the US but most of all to the rival Gulf Cartel and Sinaloa Cartel. The dead were clearly visible from across the US border in Laredo Texas.
The same day a car described as a “safari vehicle” was discovered at the Customs Brokers Municipal Building with14 decapitated bodies inside. The headless bodies were in plastic trash bags. Following that discovery police found several ice coolers on the pedestrian bridge out side of Nuevo Laredo City Hall, A bomb disposal unit from the army was called in for fear that the coolers may have contained explosives. The coolers were found to contain the severed heads of the 14 individuals previously found across town. The heads remain unidentified but in all likelihood they were members of Los Zetas and were killed in retaliation to the 9 dead bodies found hanging that morning.
Text of banner in Spanish
“Pinches golfas, así me los voy a ir acabando a todos los pendejos que mandes a calentar la plaza. Les voy a ir poniendo en su madre, en algo la tienen que cagar, y ahí le vamos a poner en su madre al pinche gringo, ahí está todo puto poniendo carros bomba y el pinche Juanito Carrizales todo puto porque le mate al pinche joto del Tubi que estaba llore y llore como vieja parturienta y el pinche metro 4 ahí andabas pidiéndole chicle al comandante Lazcano cuando te traía a puros vergazos, el R1 en Reynosa puto y ahora ahí andas de pinche mitotero, pero está bueno, ahí está tu pinche gente, los otros se me pelaron, pero ahí me los voy a chingar, al rato caen puto. Ahora ahí nos vemos bola de parapatras puto”
The banner text translated to English courteous of Borderland Beat
“Fucking (Golfos) whores, this is how I’m going to finish off every fucker you send to heat up the plaza. You have to fuck up sometime and that’s when I’m gonna put you in your place. That’s when we are going to fuck up "El Gringo" that keeps setting off car bombs, Juanito Carrizales that keeps crying like a bitch because I killed that fucker "El Tubi", "El Metro 4" who asked Comandante Lazcano for mercy when he was kicking the shit out of him, "El R1" in Reynosa, now you’re pitching a fit, that’s OK, I left you your guys, the others got away, but Ill get them. Sooner or later. See you around fuckers.”
The reference to A car bomb is most likely the April 24th attack on the justice center in Nuevo Laredo that houses the State Police of Tamaulipas. That attack seamed to be largely symbolic because only minimal damage was sustained by the building and no police officers or public officials were injured however a man a young boy sustained injuries from the blast. The army and State Police responded and quickly sealed off the aria. The operation was without a doubt under surveillance by Sinaloa Cartel observers, once the police and military formed up at the blast sight then 2 grenades were hurled into the police cordoned aria triggering 2 vans with gunmen firing automatic weapons. Fortunately for the police and army soldiers the drive-by shooters were wildly inaccurate and no casualties resulted from the attack. A elaborate banner was found at the Customs building and it was a warning to Mayor Benjamin Galvan of Nuevo Laredo from The Sinaloa Cartels leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
The long standing feud between the Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel has left the Golfos seriously weakened, subsequently the Zetas have dominated the illicit drug trade on the eastern shore of Mexico. The Sinaloa Cartels leader Joaquin” El Chapo” Guzman taking responsibility for the attack on the justice complex in Nuevo Laredo is just another shot across the Zeta's bow in an attempt to take control over the entire northern border of Mexico. Currently the Gulf Cartel has a hold on a small portion of the border in the aria of Matamoros Mexico just across the border from Brownsville Texas in the US. In a desperate move to save his the Gulf Cartel organization it seams that Juan Reyes Mejía González known as “El-R1”the leader of the Rojos faction of the Golfos has struck a deal with El Chapo. The Sinaloa Cartel boss has made several alliances in the past that has increased his territory and power in Mexico. One of the biggest alliances he has formed is with Eric Holder and Barack Obama the Attorney General and President of the United States. El Chapo is just very well connected because there is nobody on the planet that is lucky enough to be getting away with the crimes that he and his associates are charged with. One example of his LUCK is the fact that Emma Coronel, his 22-year old wife and a former beauty queen, crossed into the U.S. in mid-July of 2011 and gave birth to her twin daughters on Aug. 15 at Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, California. Birth certificates listed Coronel, who holds U.S. citizenship, as the mother but the spaces for the father’s name are blank. The FBI calmed that they tracked the Pregnant woman from her home in Mexico to the hospital. So did the FBI track her movements back? How hard would it be to track a 22 year old woman with newborn twins back to Mexico so she could present the newborn AMERICAN offspring to their drug kingpin farther?
The known death toll attributed to the “War on Drugs” in Mexico for one week is 43. Those are the ones that have been reported or found. Some of the dead have been journalists murdered for reporting on crimes by criminal organizations, government officials, military and police personnel. These people died for doing their job in an honest way to inform the citizens of Mexico.
The Los Zetas will continue to kill their opposition and post their signs, the Sinaloa's will continue to kill their opposition and post their signs, the journalists with back bones will continue to post their stories and die, the police will continue to bring out the dead.
